Mediahub/ Mullen and OwnerIQ today announced a digital media partnership that will bring customized insights and analytics gleaned from OwnerIQ’s unique Path to Purchase data to Mediahub’s client portfolio.

“OwnerIQ’s shopping-comparison engine and its strategic data relationships with major retailers and manufacturers give it unique access to the shopping behavior of more than 200 million consumers right down to the product and brand level,” said Mullen VP and Group Media Director Kazi Ahmed. “The custom tools we build on top of this rich data will enable us to address our clients’ business needs even more effectively.”

Mullen/Mediahub’s relationship with OwnerIQ grew organically over the past two years as the latter company performed consistently on some of agency’s marquee accounts. Recently, Ahmed said, the agency decided to explore creating a deeper relationship with the company.

OwnerIQ CEO and Cofounder Jay Habegger looks forward to working more closely with the agency. “Mediahub’s mantra of ‘fearless thinking’ has guided the agency’s growth into a nationally recognized, award-winning brand. This partnership gives both organizations an opportunity to collaborate to bring effective custom solutions to their advertisers.”

As part of the deal, OwnerIQ will develop a unique educational series — one that will show the Mediahub staff how to make the most of the programmatic marketplace.
